    Stir the noodles before eat.

    Stir the noodles before eat.

    In china, when we order a noodle, do we use "stir" to mix noodle, soup and meat together before eat?

    I don't know about China but that is what we would say in the US.

    Just as Gill's correction suggests, the opening statement should also be "Stir the noodles before eating".

    Or use a finite verb: 'Stir the noodles before you eat them'.
